Rare opportunity to live in a private estate surrounded by the best of Mother Nature. Enter the property by meandering down a long driveway to seclude the home from the road. Glance at the pond as you proceed to the high end custom living home that you'd be happy to stay in during any quarantine, vacation or choose to live the good life and live here full time. Almost 4000 square feet of large rooms peppered with custom woodwork throughout the home. The main level includes a 2-story foyer, Great Room with soaring wooden ceiling and natural stone fireplace that adjoins the large porch to enjoy the intimacy of your private yard, gourmet kitchen with Sub Zero and Viking stainless steel appliances, a dining room that will easily fit 8-10 people around your table, master suite with twin walk in closets and a master bath as big as most living rooms, a library or music room warmed by it's own fireplace, and a home office or Zoom room with a large window to help you enjoy Mother Nature even if you are working from home. To take care of the laundry needs, a large laundry room with wrap around cabinets is located near the exit to the oversized garage. On the upper level, your first impression is the massive custom bookcase to give you a place to show your collectables, a sitting room and virtual school room for the children, a 2nd master suite with excessive storage, and 2 more bedrooms sharing a Jack & Jill bath. The guest bedrooms also have abundant storage space. The basement area is over 2500 square feet of space waiting for your finishing touches. The workshop is complete except for paint. The other potential rooms have the stud walls in place, covered in tongue and groove pine or wood paneling with electrical and plumbing installed. It's ready to complete for another kitchen, bedroom, living space and bathroom. Storage galore in the basement too! A fireplace is also in the basement. 2-10 Home Warranty included with sale. Per owner, deed restrictions prohibit commercial business such as creating a subdivision of homes, but otherwise, the property is free of restrictions. The property is currently part of an 80 acre parcel. 5 acres will be portioned off of the 80 acres and convey with the house. The 5 acres will include a portion of the pond, an easement for the current owners to travel near the pond area to the remaining 75 acres, and an agreement to share in the upkeep of the pond.
